Zurek soup, a Polish delight

The sour rye soup (Polish: żur, żurek; Belarusian: жур, кісяліца; Czech: kyselo) is a soup made of soured rye flour (akin to sourdough) and meat (usually boiled pork sausage or pieces of smoked sausage, bacon or ham). It is specific to the cuisines of Poland and Belarus, where it is known as żur or żurek (diminutive). A variant made with wheat flour instead of rye is known in Poland as barszcz biały (“white borscht“). Varieties of this soup are also found in the cuisines of other western Slavic nations such as Slovakia (kyslóvka) and Czech Republic (kyselo – with mushrooms and without meat).img_0027_23008999724_o

HRTP Japan

Since the first session in 1987, more than 600 companies across Europe have benefited from knowledge and concrete tools for better approaching the Japanese market.

The 4-week Human Resources Training Programme – Japan Industry Insight offers EU managers the unique opportunity to experience and understand both the cultural and economic elements which define and explain Japan’s business and technological achievements. Continuously improved to meet the latest expectations about business in Japan, the HRTP provides EU businessmen with a professional Japan-related expertise.

The programme consists of a combination of lectures, a joint seminar and company visits and is designed to help participants become thoroughly informed about the actual conditions of Japanese business through practical analysis and research. This involves a better comprehension of the language, economy, history and politics of the country, as well as practical business experiences, which takes place in the HRTP. The 4-week course may be extended by an optional 5th week of individual company visits.

EU Gateway to Japan

Business spot of Phnom Penh

Perched on the idyllic setting of Tonle Sap River, banks of the Chaktomuk River, be immersed by the essence of serenity at Himawari Hotel Apartments; a five-star establishment. Enjoy splendid views of Mekong Delta in a tranquil resort haven. Be pampered in the Himawari Suites and Apartments where you can enjoy the privacy and comfort of home.

Himawari Hotel Apartments was first launched as Micasa Hotel Apartments on 20 June 2001 by His Excellency Samdech HUN SEN, Prime Minister of The Royal Government of Cambodia. In Japanese, its means Sunflower and here at the Himawari, we always seek to project our cheerfulness, friendliness and the serenity likened to a bed of sunflowers blooming under the glorious sunlight. I can seriously invite you to experience this unique Khmer hospitality.

FCC Cambodia

The Foreign Correspondents’ Club in Phnom Penh, capital of Cambodia, is a public bar and restaurant along the Tonle Sap river, not far from the conjunction with the Mekong river. It is often referred to as ‘the FCC,’ or just simply ‘the F.’

It is in a three-storey colonial-style building with wonderful views over the river.

The FCC in Phnom Penh is not a private club, like other Foreign Correspondents’ Clubs around the world, but members from reciprocal clubs (like the FCC Hong Kong) get a 10% discount on food and drinks.

The FCC in Phnom Penh has nine hotel rooms. They also have a hotel, restaurant and bar in Siem Reap, the gateway to Angkor Wat.

The sweet spot of Singapore

The multicultural city of Singapore provides a unique journey for travelers and staying in my hotels in this city can make it even more exceptional. My Orchardgateway Hotel, located right in the heart of the famous Orchard Road, has direct access to four main shopping malls for great shopping and restaurants of various cuisines. At the fringe of Orchard Road is my Tanglin Hotel, connected to Tanglin Mall and just a short walk away from the serene Botanic Gardens.

Orchardgateway Hotel has direct access to the Somerset MRT and at Tanglin Hotel, a free shuttle bus is provided for you to the nearest Orchard MRT. Taxis are available too right by the front door of my hotels in Singapore giving you no excuse not to be able to explore the city. You will be surprised finding out how much you  can do and what the city has to offer.

Ett år av tystnad

Ett år av tystnad

Det har gått ett och ett halvt år sedan militären tog makten i Thailand efter en oblodig kupp. Generalen Prayuth Chan-otcha utlovade då nyval, men det har ännu inte skett. I stället har klimatet hårdnat och en tystnad börjar sprida sig i samhället.
